Wauwatosa Energy Committee. A Committee of the Wauwatosa Common Council devoted to energy matters. Green Neighbor - Wauwatosa was inspired by the this group's Community Energy Efficiency subcommittee (led by John Bahr). The Energy Committee's recommendations to the Common Council were endorsed by a vote of 11-1 on 2/15/2011. Recommendation 7 includes, "Expand community outreach on energy issues. Continue the development of a home-based energy efficiency program for city residents." We hope to be part of that effort.
